had not as yet opened my eyes, being
daunted nt tlio Itlea of encountering thu
dreary darkness of tlio grave, lint my
eotirago being fconiewhnt augmented
by tho foregoing events, I endeavored
to open them. This was Impossible;
anil, on examination, I found that they
wore bandaged, my head being encircled
with a llllet. On endeavoring to loosen
It, I lost inybalaiico,nnd tumbled down
with a hideous' iioIm;. 1 did not merely
fall upon the bottom of tho collln, as
might bu expected; on tho contrary, I
seemed to roll off It, and fell lower, as It
were, into home vault underneath. In
endeavoring to nrrest this strnngo de
scent, I caught hold of the collln, and
pulled It on thu top of inc. Nor was
this nil; for, before I could account for
such a train of extraordinary accidents
below ground, nnd while yet stupefied
and bewildered, I heard a door open,
and, In an instant after, human voices.
"What In Heaven's name, can ho the
meaning of this'.'" ejaculated I Involun
tarily. "Is it a dream'.' am 1 asleep or
am J awako'.' Am I tlead or alive?''
While meditating thus, and struggling
to extricate myself from tlio collln, I
heard some onu say distinctly, "(iootl

At Iho sumo lu-tant, tho llllet was druwn

would satisfy me hut a philosophical
isolation of tho problem, "Why was I

"Tho day heforo yesterday," -aid he,
"I Informed the resurrectionists in the

to my indignation and grief, 1 found
that they had disinterred my oNccllont

" What !" said 1, starting up from tho
hod, "did they disinter me',' tho scoun

said tho professor, "for preventing n

Such was a slmplo statement of tho
fact, delivered in the professor's good
humoured and satirical style; and
from It tho reader may guess what a
narrow escape I had from tho most
tlreatirul of deaths, and how much am I
Indebted, In the first Instance, to the
stupid blunderlngof the resurrectionists,
and, In tho second, to tho tailor. I re
turned to my own hotiso ns soon ns

or my cousin, who was proceeding to
invest himself with all that belonged to
me. I made him refund without
ceremony, and nltered my will, which
hail been mailo in his favour; not for
getting in so doing his refusal to let my
body remain two days longer unhurled.
A tiny or two afterwards I saw a funeral
pass by, which, on Inquiry, I learned
to bo Wolstnng's. Ho died suddenly,
as I was Informed, and some persons re
marked it as a curious event that his
deatli happened at precisely the same
moment ius my return to life. This was
merely mentioned as a passing observa
tion, but no iufe'reiico was deduced from
it. Thu old domestic in Wolstnng's
houe gavu a wonderful account of his
death, mentioning thuhournt which bo
said hu was to tile, nnd how it was veri

however, about thu hundred gliders.
